Oh, I have?
Well, they really loved this activity!
I squirted some tempera paint in the colors of their choice on a large sheet of paper.
And a-painting they went!
We tried holding the edges down with rocks from Jake's collection. Tried being the operative word.
Hey, Zac! Don't you want to paint???
The other two . . . ahem, we three (I couldn't let them have all the fun!) thoroughly enjoyed it though and painted multiple pictures.
We filled a big bucket of water to wash off. As always, the activity turned into a science experiment. Jake was choosing his colors of paint for his pictures based on which colors he wanted to use in the rinse water.
The great thing about this activity (other than feeling the cool paint squish between your toes!) is that you can reuse the pictures as wrapping paper, cards, in frames, etc.
A fun activity, a science experiment, a reusable craft, and a painted patio to boot? Sounds like a winner in my book!
